What is Shave Ice?

“Shave Ice” or “Hawaiian Shave Ice” (not Shaved Ice with a “D”) is a fluffy and snow-like, sweet, cool and refreshing Hawaiian treat.  Ice is finely shaved and then syrups are poured and absorbed into the soft snow. Whereas sno-cones are ground up ice cubes that have a coarse and “crunchy” texture.

Hawaiian shave ice is traditionally served in plastic cups with a scoop of ice cream and/or azuki beans on the bottom. A sweetened condensed milk mixture, some times called “snow cap”, can be drizzled over the top.

About Us

Brandt Family on Haleakala

Auntie Viv’s Shave Ice is a family owned business where everyone is welcomed and treated like ohana (family)!

Vivian, her husband Bill and their two young keiki’s, daughters Chloe and Ella, visited Maui for the first time in 2017. Vivian fell in love at “first taste” with her very first Hawaiian shave ice. How she describes this phenomenon: “It literally was like a deliciously flavored, puffy cloud that instantly melted in my mouth and tasted like liquid gold.” Vivian says, “It was the best epicurean experience ever.”

Upon returning to the mainland, Vivian had her sights set on opening her own shave ice business. Vivian didn’t want to serve the typical crunchy, icy, sno-cone, with gross high fructose corn syrups and artificially flavored/colored syrups. Auntie Viv’s prides itself in their handcrafted syrups that are made with real, natural, ingredients and 100% pure cane sugar.

The Press

  •   I had Auntie Viv's at my brother's birthday party, and it was absolutely AMAZING!! This is the real deal, legit Hawaiian shaved ice, not snow cone stuff you get at other places. I absolutely loved that the syrups, which are naturally flavored and not "over the top" sugar sweetened syrup. The homemade mochi was delicious!!! I loved that the whole family is involved and they enjoy what they do. Service with a smile, even in 90+degree weather  Mahalo!!

  •   My first time trying this at a birthday party and was NOT disappointed! Reminds me of local shave ice back at home in Hawaii! Ono flavors and mochi, red bean, and ice cream was awesome!!

  •   If you ever see Auntie Viv's Shave Ice booth, run, don't walk to get the best shaved ice in town! Seriously! The ice is delicate and melts in your mouth (you won't get any crunchy ice). Her syrups are all made from scratch and so delicious! If there is a long line, it's worth the wait! You won't be disappointed and the proportions are huge!

  •   How much fun is this!??! We had Auntie Viv's shave ice at our company bbq and it was a huge hit! the shave ice is REAL! and the flavors were never ending! My favorite was that they had Li Hing Mui powder for me to top off my pineapple and pina colada shave ice - just like the islands!  Auntie Viv has a personality like no other - loved her enthusiasm and charisma! Now i just need another excuse to invite her back!!! 🙂

  •   Auntie Viv's shaved ice is so delicious! After visiting Hawaii and eating shaved ice every single day I thought I would never find nothing like it, but thankfully I came across Auntie Viv's at a food festival. Ever since then I always make sure to make a stop at their stand whenever they are at a farmers markets or food festivals.

    The flavors I've tasted most recently were coconut, P.O.G and black cherry. I had actually ordered strawberry but received black cherry instead. At first I was bummed, but black cherry ended up being my favorite flavor out of the three. The snow cap is also a must!

    I hope Auntie Viv's has an actual store soon!
